Elizabeth Lemaster


Elizabeth was born and raised in both the United Methodist Church and Wilmington, North Carolina. She credits the church and faithful people throughout her life with deepening her faith in Christ. Elizabeth believes that people of all ages can become disciples of Christ, especially children, and this informs all aspects of her ministry (which includes Godly Play, Sunday School, Kids for Christ Events, leading Children’s Choir, and the planning of special events involving children and families). She loves making connections with the families of Wesley Memorial.

When not working, Elizabeth enjoys drinking coffee, exploring new things in her hometown, spending time with friends and family, traveling, and snuggling with beloved pug, OJ.

Because I’ve experienced God’s love and generosity at Wesley Memorial, I’m joyful about the opportunity to share that same love and generosity, not only within these walls, but also within the community of Wilmington and beyond.

After moving to Wilmington, we wanted a church that had a good worship service, friendly members, and a strong youth program for both of our children… after visiting Wesley, our kids said, ‘This is it. This is the church for us. We don’t need to go anywhere else." We knew it was going to be our new church home.

We’ve spent more than twenty years of marriage searching for the right church home – we’ve found it at Wesley Memorial. The people are genuinely warm, and they will meet you wherever you are on your faith journey.
